Actually, Zatoichi - the famous blind swordsman who starred in over two dozen Japanese films and his opponent did not play chess. They undoubtedly played Shogi (将棋 shōgi , generals' chess) ( //), also known as Japanese chess, a two-player strategy board game in the same family as Western chess, chaturanga, and Chinese xiangqi, and is the most popular of a family of chess variants native to Japan. Shōgi means general's (shō 将) board game (gi 棋). SOURCE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shogi This doesn't really have anything to do with the game here, but I'm a big fan of Zatoichi!
